INDIA: Vardhaman Group Delivers Tepid Results
Vardhaman Group's three subsidiaries delivered tepid results for the last quarter. Combined year-on-year sales for the second quarter for Vardhaman Spinning, Mahavir Spinning, and Vardhaman Polytex grew six per cent from US$77.6m to US$82.4m, but profits declined eight per cent from US$6.4m to US$5.8m. The three companies have facilities for acrylic and acrylic-wool blended yarn, fabric and processing. The dominant player in this field for a generation now, the group is now facing a serious challenge from an Indian player who has set up shop in neighbouring Nepal, where Indian exporters can import goods free of customs duty.
